SETIzens!

We are drawing very near to the deadline for nominations for the 1999 =
Bruno Award. Therefore, I have made up a very short list of potential =
candidates to be recommended to the Executive Board for consideration of =
the award.

The top candidates follow:

Dr. Bernard Oliver, principal author of Project Cyclops and Director of =
NASA SETI until it's cancellation in 1993. Nominated posthumously by =
SETILeague member, Tom Pierson.

Orville Greene, Co-founder of the SETILeague. Orville's estate also =
provided a generous financial contribution to the League. Nominated =
posthumously by SETILeague President, Richard Factor.

Mr. Adrian Berry, London Science Journalist, and writer of 17 books on =
various popular science topics. Adrian has an endowed foundation which =
has just made a most generous gift to the SETILeague.

Dr. Stuart Kingsley, who has almost single handedly championed optical =
seti for many years. See <http://www.coseti.org> for more details.=20

Noel C. Welstead, whose received record of contribution to the =
SETILeague and to SETI in general, is far too long to list here, but =
includes:
*the first operational Project Argus station in the Southern =
Hemisphere,
*Regional Coordinator for Eastern Australia,=20
*given numerous radio and TV interviews and spoken about SETI to many =
civic =20
organizations.

Dr. Jill Tarter, Project Director for the SETI Institutes' Project =
Phoenix. Dr. Tarter has devoted her life to Astrophysics in general, and =
SETI in particular. Honors include: two NASA public Service Medals, and =
the Women in Science Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Tarter presently =
continues research in SETI at the Arecibo Radiotelescope in Puerto Rico. =
More can be seen at: <http://www.seti-inst.edu/phoenix/staff.html>=20

As the Awards Chair, I think everyone should get an award. And, everyone =
I listed above are very deserving indeed. I am especially torn between =
Dr. Kingsley, Noel C. Welstead, and Dr. Jill Tarter. All three embody =
the spirit of SETI and the ideals we aspire to in the SETILeague. I =
therefore appeal to the membership for help. Any members who have =
thoughts on these candidates please e.mail me as soon as possible. I =
will be sending in recommendations to Paul and the rest of the Executive =
Board, first thing January 1st.

I want to thank all the membership for their participation. I also wish =
all of you a very Happy New Year!

Sincerely,

David M. Ocame
Awards Chair for
The SETILeague, Inc.
